Default Happy St George's Day

I'll be driving back in my American car, to my apartment in the UAE, to change into some American designed and Chinese made (probably) clothes, to walk to the local pub in the Indian hotel to drink some Dutch lager and maybe some foreign made pale ales.

Can't. Freakin. Wait.

GMT is still ours. We tell them when they can go to lunch.

Don't forget that small victory.

This week I am at my London City branch for some meetings etc.

I was so pleased to see a load of pubs decked out in England flags and a bunch of half drunk city folk on a pub crawl fully dressed in St Georges costumes. Definitely warmed my heart and proved once again why I love London so much :-)

Of course MillHouse. I said I loved London, did not say I wanted to move back any time soon. :-)

London is nice if you have the income of a Russian Oligarch, but not so nice if you are a local punter.

Errrmm...

Which one? GMT or GMAT?..

Either way, most of the world has moved onto UTC, so UTC tells them when to go for lunch...

..and the Greenwich Time Signal (beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, BEEEP!!) is gonna die when they switch off analog radio.....
